My next fountain for June is from Sezincote. An unusual example of Neo-Mughal architecture situated in the middle of the English Cotswolds.

Thomas Daniell, famous as a painter of Indian scenery, designed the Indian Bridge and the Indian Temple.

This month she is looking for unusual details on fountains/unusual fountains. I’m sure she would love to see you.

  1. It’s a beautiful and not quite so usual fountain, Jude. I had never heard of Thomas Daniell so I looked him up, I think his work is quite impressive and I especially enjoyed looking at the the painting “Temple, Fountain and Cave in Sezincote Park”.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend,
    Dina & co

    1. We stayed quite close to this place and it appeared on my search for gardens to visit. Glad we went, it is most unusual – click on the link for more images of the house and garden.

    1. It may be a small island (well there are lots of even smaller islands too) but it is crammed with delights and eccentricities! So much that I haven’t discovered yet too.

      1. A very long time ago, briefly. I remember the timber-framed buildings. Surprising that I haven’t visited more recently as it wasn’t far from where we lived in Shropshire. Only drove past on the way north or to the airport though. When did you move to SA then?

  2. Amazing fountains for sure. I love the first one, the pond is clean and lovely. Looks very natural with sand in the bed. Water dropping lightly makes it very melancholic. Beautiful setting.
